I'd much rather have some overkill than some underkill

Oooohh...I see now B-main was comparing the Pro 4 HD 4300 to the Pro 4 4600. I missed the HD part. I see now. I'm just running a Pro 4 4000kv.

I run the same combo as BSCFlash and i love it. I copied MonsterSummit originally after he was dominating all things pro4 and continues to do so in our area. The 2 pole is a lot smoother rolling on the throttle you dont have to worry about the wheels spinning as much. It has enough power to make any jump and hang with or even out run any 4 pole down a straight away. It seems to run a lot cooler than my 4 pole ever did (130s vs 190s). The thing i hated about my 4 pole was it was an on and off switch, really no in between and the 2 pole has as much as your squeezing the trigger. Since i've switched i have become a lot more consistent and have been doing better results wise as well.

The 4-pole tends to be very agressive on the low end (more torque), while the 2-pole has less torque, and a better "actual use of" the power, almost like a built-in traction control. The 2-pole seems to hook up much better while not blowing the tires off, but still has awesome upper-end power and speed with the right ESC settings. It is still a beast, although it's a 2-pole, because it does have a massive 550 can.

I have used the HD 4300, and it is far too much power for such a light truck. I prefer the 4600 over the 4300 all day day long if you must go 4-pole.

Most of the local TLR guys have gone to the 2-pole 4.5t, and, in fact, one of our guys TQd at the Midwest Nationals with my exact configuration.

As you can see by my vehicles below, I run both motor configurations, but prefer the 2-pole on smaller indoor tracks. We have yet to try the 2-pole on the outdoor tracks due to winter.

Default Diff Assembly

Hi all,
Putting together my first diff and wanted to see if these bearings are suppose to fit flush against the gear housing as it was really tight to get them on to where they are now. Is this ok?

Also no issues screwing on the diff screws pre threaded them first

Thanks
Ken

Great heads up..... I think I'm going to make the switch..... My 4700 is like you said hard or soft.... I'm going to try a 4.5t... Would a 3.5 be cutting it close?

Try to avoid using a hammer, they aren't meant to take that sort of side force. The bearings are a tight fit, just takes a little patience to install them.

Will the servo/rx box from the 8ight e 3.0 fit on this truck? If so, why aren't more people just doing that so their rx isn't exposed to all that dirt?

Because dirt doesn't do any harm to it?

We use some fine sandpaper to turn them down a tick. The bearing then "wiggles on" without the use of excess force, and are still plenty snug. Remember, if you hammer them on, you could risk damaging the bearing, and ultimately have a bearing that is very difficult to remove.
